The man's got a knack for catchy songwriting, no question, although he's got a pretty lame voice. I like the orchestration throughout this album and the occasional Jethro Tull-isms. Long story short, not an album for everyone. People particularly annoyed by the likes of Sufjan Stevens might feel the same about this guy. You'll have to try a song or two out on Youtube to know - I recommend "Summertime Is Wintertime".
